Hello from Nebraska!
« on: February 21, 2021, 08:15:29 PM »
I've been looking for a new car and happened across a listing for an 88 eagle. I pretty much fell in love as soon as I saw it! A 4x4 80s station wagon was everything I could ask for in a vehicle.
It's nearly perfect except a few issues like the blinkers and break lights not working and a missing head liner. The top piece of trim on the back drivers side window has also broken off, seems like some of the plastic clips that are supposed to hold it on have broken.
Everything else seems to be perfect on it though. For a car that's spent its entire life in the rust belt it's got nearly no rust on it!

To introduce myself though, I'm only 20 years old and currently working as a custodian just to save up some money to hopefully go back to college. I don't have too much experience working on cars but I'm hoping to learn a lot through working on my eagle.

I really appreciate this forum's existence, it really helped sell me on just how awesome these cars are and has already come in handy with fixing some issues.
